Q. What should my child wear?
A. We ask that all children are dressed ready for sport and appropriately for the weather. Shorts, t-shirts and football socks are recommended, but tracksuit bottoms and tops are also absolutely fine. Shin pads are essential, your child may not be able to take part in some (or all) of the activities if they do not bring shin pads. In inclement weather we recommend layers, so that your child can take off/put on extra layers if they get too hot or cold. If your child would like to purchase a Fulham kit in advance, you can do so here. There is a click and collect service available from our stadium store (near Bishops Park) and our Motspur Park venue.
Q. Can I stay to watch my child's session?
A. We do allow parents to stay and watch the sessions, should they wish. Parents are also very welcome to sign their child in and leave them with us for the duration of the session if they prefer. The only venue which parents cannot stay to watch is at the Fulham Training Ground, Motspur Park.
Q. What footwear should my child bring?
A. The footwear recommended depends on the venue that your child is taking part at. For venue-specific information, click on ‘Our Venues’ and select your chosen venue. For courses that take place on grass, we recommend football boots during the winter months, although astroturf or moulded boots may suffice during the summer months. For courses that take place on 3G astroturf or synthetic grass pitches, we recommend astroturf trainers or moulded boots, but no metal studs.
Q. What time do the courses run to and from?
A. Our Billy's Beginners courses run between 9am-11am. Player Development courses run from 9am-3pm. Advanced Player Development courses run between 9am-4pm. For information on Skills Club timings, please click here.
Q. What happens if it rains?
A. We will endeavour to keep the children playing football for as long as possible during our Soccer Schools, but inevitably the courses can be disrupted by rain, particularly during the winter months. If our coaches deem the weather too wet or dangerous to play football safely then contingencies are put in place at each venue to move inside and take part in indoor, or sheltered, activities. It is worth noting that not every venue has the facilities to cater for indoor football, therefore these activities may include quizzes, competitions or other such football-themed games.
Q. What other services do you offer outside of the holidays?
A. We offer bespoke birthday parties, team training sessions and match day experiences, in addition to our Soccer Schools. Our Skills Club also runs all year round at a number of venues across London and Surrey. For further information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We also run an extensive schools programme across a wide network of schools in London and the surrounding areas, for further information on how your school can work with Fulham FC Foundation, contact email@example.com.
